As you know, I have a new book! I wrote, edited, and published a short story in just three short days and you can now get it for free! Read on to learn more about it.
About the Book
And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.
No longer could I say I was lonely. But oh, how I wish I could! Who could have done such a thing to the Creator of the world? Who had so much hatred for Him? Continue reading →
To all Christians. May we never forget the somberness, gravity, or joy of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.
I am empty. Bereft. No one visits, no one comes near. The garden is a comfort in some ways. The beauty of the flowers, the trees, and the sky above. But I am lonely. Not like my brothers and sisters nearby. They have been used. They are filled with the bodies of their masters’ loved ones. Continue reading →
Winning story in Perry Elisabeth Design’s short story contest.
I don’t like change. I know most people get used to it, but I have never been able to. When Dad announced their move and I couldn’t go with them, I didn’t handle it well. Would I ever find the faith to be victorious?
Content warning: A character does attempt suicide, so please read with caution.
No, I’m not talking about myself with that title. It’s the title of the book that is releasing on September 26th!
To celebrate the release, I’m doing something a little different. First, the blog tour is shorter (September 26-28) and then on September 30th a friend and I are doing a Facebook party together. Her book, Befriending the Beast is releasing that day and we thought it would be fun to a party together.
I was privileged to work with 5 other authors to put this anthology together. It’s been great getting to know them and working together. Remember, this book is free, so make sure you pick up a copy for yourself and tell others about it.
The authors that participated in Where the Light May Lead will have a Facebook party on Saturday, May 14, 2016, from 6:30 – 9:00 PM CST. It will be filled with fun and prizes. We would love to see you there! https://www.facebook.com/events/102057706872905/
Six authors, six genres, six bite-sized stories of women living out their faith in ordinary and extraordinary circumstances. When the heart is willing to follow, where does the light lead? Continue reading →
On April 30th, there will be a new book published. It isn’t completely mine, but I do have a novelette in the book. What is the book about?
Six authors, six genres, six bite-sized stories of women living out their faith in ordinary and extraordinary circumstances. When the heart is willing to follow, where does the light lead?
Sample Old West justice. Watch a romance unfold over light years. Laugh as an introvert finagles her way out of a bridal shower. Agonize with an FBI agent as she negotiates for a child’s life. Imagine a shape-shifting cat who tracks down a kidnapper. And peek behind the scenes as a guardian angel argues with a double-talking auto mechanic. Learn again that the light of faith can lead you anywhere.
I’ve read all the novelettes in this collection, and they are all good reads. If you are interested in being part of the blog tour, keep your eyes on my blog or Facebook page. The tour will be sometime in May (we haven’t decided for sure when yet).
Part three of my Christmas story. If you haven’t read part one and part two, please do so before reading this section.
The Halberg’s spent the next few hours in prayer as other people drifted in and out waiting for their own family members and then leaving to visit their injured.
Three hours after arriving, a doctor came in. “Are you Virginia Halberg’s family?”
Mr. Halberg stood. “Yes, we are.” He looked around the room. No one else was there.
“Won’t you please sit back down?” the doctor asked. “I’m Doctor Rodgers.” When they were all seated, he spoke again, “We did everything we could, but the bullet must have ricocheted. When it entered her body, it went in multiply places, including a piece that lodged an eighth of an inch from her heart. I left that one for last, but by then, she was gone. I’m sorry. The only consolation I can give you is that she died with a smile on her face. I’m not sure why…”
Margaret beamed. “That would be because she saw Jesus.”
Today, Wednesday, and Friday, I am posting three parts of a short story I wrote for Christmas. It’s a very different type of Christmas story, but I hope you enjoy it.
How Great our Joy!
Christmas. A time for family, food, and fun. But what happens when tragedy strikes?
Ginny ran as fast as her small legs could carry her. Why had she left her parents and sister to look at the silver ornaments? She scraped her hands and knees on the ground as the man chasing her landed on top of her with a thud. She tried to scream, but nothing came out. Continue reading →
